Sea shells

2nd August

Pictured here are just some of the beautiful sea shells that cover the white sands of Prince Charlie’s Bay on the Island of Eriskay.
It has been named Prince Charlie’s Bay or “Coilleag a’ Phrionsa” in Gaelic as it is said to be where Bonnie Prince Charlie first set foot on Scottish soil, and from here he proceeded to Glenfinnan to make his first attempt in taking the crown in the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion.
Whilst Harris Tweed® is currently handwoven only on the islands of Lewis and Harris, the definition set out in the 1993 Harris Tweed® Act of Parliament allows it to be legally manufactured in any of the islands of the Outer Hebrides.
